There are two kinds of crab available which include the picked and whole meat. Crab meat can be labeled as “flake” or in smaller pieces of meat, “lump” or large pieces, and “claw” or the crab’s claws. It is best to buy live crabs at Crab Dynasty whenever possible. When deciding the number of crabs to serve, count two soft-shell crabs or six steamed hard shell crabs per person. Never buy or consume a whole, dead, and uncooked crabs.
It can be messy, challenging, yet exciting picking and eating crabs, and you need a large workspace, a bowl for cooked crabs, a bowl for pure meat, and another container for the shells. While there are a many ways to pick crabs, you can start by the removal of the legs and the claw by grabbing the base of each leg, then pulling the leg away. When opening the crab’s body, you can use your thumbs to pull the top and separate it away from the rest of the body, exposing the stuff inside. Grab the front part of the crab and pinch away from the rest of the body and clean it. When it comes to identifying the lungs of the crab, they appear as whitish or yellowish feathery cones lining the side of the crab’s body. The lungs must be carefully removed and thrown away. You will definitely love the center part of the crab where you can find the greenish liver and the bright orange colored eggs or roe (coral) of a female crab.
The coral is very delicious which is usually added to cooking crab soups and crab cakes. If you want to eat the good meat, you’ll find it inside the snow crab’s legs, king crab’s legs, Dungeness crabs, and blue crabs. You can eat the good meat found in cartilage-lined channels of the inside part of the crab’s body by breaking it into half. Picking and fishing out the yummy crab’s meat can be challenging and daunting at first, but as you learn, you’ll do it faster the next time. While it is true that smaller crabs have little meat, they can be added into sauces and stocks to get the sweet crab flavor of your seafood dish.
